A little fanart I made of Li Österbergs (A-gnosis) Persephone from her webcomics Queen of the dead and Theia Mania.
I love LI's interpretation of the abduction of Persephone!!
You will never find a Persephone with as a unique personality as hers!
Also.. she absolutely rocks that Minoan haircut <3
you can read her stories here:
ah also we did a little art swap
The webcomic Punderworld is a take on the myth of Hades and Persephone by Linda Sejik. The art is absolutely amazing and I really like her version of Persephone since she is of the more feisty and free-spirited kind. <3
An interesting infrastructural development of the 21st century was the re-purposing of abandoned mines into subterranean farms. This was driven by efforts to reduce crop failures due to increasingly volatile surface weather as well as to find new space for agriculture as greater and greater swathes of land became unfit for growth or else placed under national park protection. In the massive mines of South Africa this system was developed extensively with titanic gravity batteries installed in deep vertical mineshafts to better provide energy storage.
A technician takes a smoke break beneath a heliostat in the Atacama. With the depletion of fossil fuel reserves, solar thermal energy became a vital component of manufacturing and resulted in industrial booms in and around areas of exceptional solar irradiance worldwide. By the 2100s, the Atacama and Kalahari deserts as well as the Tibetan plateau and the Australian outback became known for their seemingly endless arrays of solar furnaces and parabolic concentrators.
Collapsing economies drove a sharp increase in poaching and illegal mining and logging operations in protected natural areas. As a response to this, many governments found themselves forced to militarize their national park services if they didn’t want to see their parks cannibalized.
A mycelium craftsman scolds his apprentice for neglecting to properly dry out a piece of grown furniture resulting in a growth of mushrooms. In suburbs and cities where more organic waste was created than could be feasibly composted, mycelium was used to turn rubbish into insulative bricks and lightweight furniture, among other things.
Delivery of compressed air batteries by oxcart. Over the 21st and 22nd centuries as the tide of industrialism and urbanization receded, rural communities found it easier to rely on technologies that could be repaired or recycled consistently over decades of use
Electronic waste prohibitions as well as concerns over the long-term repairability of micro-electronics actually brought about a resurgence in mechanical computation in the 21st century. Mechanical calculators became commonplace in engineering offices. Analytical engines built from open source schematics dating back to Babbage himself were actually built in significant numbers, usually by town governments looking to automate utilities.
